    I really appreciate all of the helpful videos and tips. It is a real change from other post processing companies and you are to be emulated. Also, your technical staff is very responsive to email calls for help. It is really great to actually communicate with “real” people. Keep it up! Jim B

    Improvements have been quite positive and appreciative. I really look forward to an iPad compatible version. More critical now as Apple’s new OS will allow working with memory cards. That will allow quick access to ON1 for review and quick edits. Any time frame for this?

    Hi Nathan

    Looks like we are in for another interesting year.

    I think that Photo Raw 2019.5 has matured into a very capable package. The sliders that allow you to turn down the demands that Photo Raw places upon a graphics card, have delivered on my low powered laptop. Except for when MS Windows has decided to run a sneaky update or two, my copy of Photo Raw has been very stable. And, you could not say the same about PR 2017.

    The new layers tools, combined with the blending and protection tools are great things to have in the toolbox. Better still they are so easy to use.

    It would be nice to have a return of the line making tool, as combined with grids and maybe curves, it might enable us to make some fancy masks and frames. More flexible transform tools would also be a nice to have.

    When you launched the original photo raw, it was not so good. But, the potential of what it could develop, into was obvious, even then. I am glad that I stuck with Photo Raw, when it was struggling, because the good times are certainly rolling now.

    Best wishes to all at On1 Towers.

    Your team, contributing editors and photographers are great. Adding Anthony Morganti to the team is a wonderful step. Keep up the great work!

    After teaching Photoshop for 20 years (all free courses) and Lightroom for over 6 years, I have uninstalled Lightroom, and I seldom use Photoshop because I can do most of what I want to do in ON1.

    I am very greedy. I am anxiously awaiting ON1 2020 to see what goodies you have in store for us.

    Anthony Morganti is the BEST, and a great adjunct to your fine internal teaching staff. I believe there are more video tutorials available to ON1 than for any other program. I have downloaded all of the third party tutorials and continuously re-watch them.

    I had grown to despise Lightroom and I became bored with the slow pace with which Adobe has been adding improvements to Photoshop since they went on a subscription-only plan. Then I discovered ON1 2018. Editing has become a fun-filled adventure ever since.

    Thanks to all of the ON1 people, especially the developers and the support people.

    Really love using ON1, been using it since March and was able to finally stop subscribing to LR/PS also glad I signed up for ON1 Plus too all the videos are great, love the videos by Hudson and his latest ON1 Photo Kit Capture to Edit (Although Hudson’s cost me a little money lately since I switched from using ball heads to fluid heads on both my tripods! LOL) Also learned a lot from the Shooting Fireworks course. Loved the Removing Distractions course by Scott Davenport too! Also keep the weekly webinars with Dylan coming those are very informative.

    Alas I cannot share the enthusiasm of the above contributors. Because of the problems with the Wacom pen which either does not work on the menu commands or acts as a plain mouse without the pressure sensitivity – the bug introduced with the version 2019.5 – I have sidetracked the ON1 Photo Raw and returned back to the old reliable duo PS and LR. I hope the guys at ON1 work hard on this problem, as it does not affect only me and my work but also many others, and the update solving this bug will be out soon.

    It’s been slow progress, but PR 2019 is much more reliable than 17 and 18. The Effects stand out as easier to tailor than other Photo editors and the masking is very intuitive. I too look forward to the line mask returning and maybe some basic geometric shapes too. Other things I hope for is brush flow control – should be easy for you to do! I have put these into the “Ideas” section.

    With 2019.5 I have fully migrated to on1 and am fully committed. My biggest issue is the inability to use my tablet. Looking forward to the resolution of this issue. Love the training and Morganti being added to the training staff.

    I love On1. My only upgrades for the future would be a fix for Wacom tablets pressure sensitivity and having the history of your edits remain from day to day. Your team is awesome. Thanks for making such a top notch product.

    Being from the other side of the world( South Africa) I find the amount of info videos, explanations, discussions etc. an absolute blessing considering time differences etc. I am into mostly wildlife photography and the improvement in my work is amazing thanks to ON1. My 1 small suggestion is that when you advertise webinars you include GMT along with your local time as with your daylight saving etc it gets confusing. I`m sure people in other parts of the world would also find this helpful. Looking forward to further updates.

    As an early adopter of ON1 products (Adobe options were far more expensive and overly complex so finding what function you actually needed was a major research activity) I have seen how the ON1 team are dedicated to excelling!. There is no such thing as perfect software (I know by working decades in the IT industry), but you are now delivering a truly great and very usable photo editing product in Photo Raw 2019.5. But your real team strength comes with the additional amazing range of Tutorial material available to users through your “Gurus” and in my experience, excellent support.
    Could not be happier being part of the ON1 community. When things are not as you would like, a request usually results in either a software upgrade or advice on how to emulate what you want to do. A fix I requested was the return of the “canvas size” function, which reappeared in short order. :-)

    I downloaded 2019.5 for the second time and once again it hangs up and will not work on my windows 10 computer. I reloaded 2019 and it works great but before all of this trouble with .5 started, I had 2019.2. How do I get. 2 back? Thanks. Also any idea why 2019.5 hangs up? I have plenty of memory and my processor is quick. Thanks again.

      Hi Jim,

      That is not very common. I would try a different web browser, and reach out to our support team if you’re still having problems. We have alternative ways if you’re still having issues.
